Pigpen's sick, everything else is great, but why is The Other One split up into four separate tracks? It destroys the continuity.

Subject: Thank You Mike Lai and Paul Bottiglio...
...for presenting this. Despite negative reviews this is a peddle-to-the-metal distinctive show. One in which yours truly was a dutiful audience member.
The glistering magic of Jerry's guitar turns a listener to proverbial mush. It transforms galaxies and propels you into galaxies untold. What can you say repelling Jerry's omnipresent strakkk-strakk-telluhhlllee-strak? It melts.
The sound is not all that bad. It is adequate.
The rest is just pure slick easement.
Subject: Intermittent static/distortion on the Keyboard channel
Poor Keith. The static/distortion seems to be coming from the keyboard. With every phrase Keith plays it's contaminated with static/distortion, or maybe his speakers are blown...or his signal was overloadiing the board and red lining it, in any case the sound and playing suffer some.
Obviously the boys didn't hear the anomaly or they would have stopped and fixed it. The sound guys start to fix the keyboard problem on the 16th track, Ramble On Rose. The sound guy really blew this one. I wonder if they fired him, or fed him to the Hell's Angels? Is it a Capital crime to ruin the sound at a Grateful Dead show?
Another show ruined by equipment and technical issues. Keith is plagued by sound problems, what a shame. He is playing his ass off with a bad amp, or bad speaker, or cords that are shorting out, who knows...bummer man...all the sound people can do is turn him down...Maybe there was no sound check...tsk tsk tsk.
From Cryptical Envelopment to the end it seems they semi-fixed Keith's sound by turning him down. "Comes A Time" is a very appropriate song for this show. Jerry knew, he always knew.
Thanks for a show Keith wouldn't want anyone to hear. I am going down the road feelin bad, but my love will not fade away. If you want to listen to patients, and professionalism listen to how the DEAD don't kill the sound guys during this show. :)

Solid show though.
Subject: Cincinnati show has gone missing
Where is the Oct 30th Taft Auditorium show from Cincy? It has not been released and has vanished along with the Manhatten Center shows from 71 and the incredible Rotterdam 72 show?

Subject: The distortion on disc 3 is very tolerable
And that's where the meat of this show is anyway.
Subject: Too Much Distortion
I find this much too annoying to listen to more then once. Interestingly, it doesn't come through when I stream it, but once burned to CD it is horrible. My computer speakers may not get that high end. Nice versions of songs, but unlistenable IMO. A few songs are almost free of distortion - Sing Me Back Home, end of TOO->Cyrptical and Comes A Time. I would avoid this show with so much other good quality sbd's available
Subject: Good show but...
This is an excelent show but there is some distortion here and there. To me it can be really annoying.
Subject: better than Sunday!
I know everybody loves 11/7/71, as do I, but I was there Saturday night, and thought it was a superior show at the time. Now that I finally have a copy, I'm convinced of it. The only extended Bertha I've heard, and everything else played beautifully. And Cryptical! What a treat. I also think the sound quality is much better than 11/7. Thanks to those responsible.

Okay, so this can't compare to the next night, where they play pretty much every song they know, and just blow everybody's cookies away. But this one still has its merits, and well worth getting, if for no other reason than this may be the only time the Dead played the Harding, and hey, the 2 nights make a nice little box set.
The set list is almost identical, except for the welcome additions of Bertha and Black Peter here.
And - the Other One includes the two Cryptical sections not played on 11/7. After psychedelic excursions for over 20 minutes, they land the ship with a nice version of Comes a Time that includes the "words to stand behind" verse that was later dropped.
All in all, a very enjoyable show. However - be forewarned! Like the following night, this SBD suffers from distortion in Keith's piano mike, but it comes and goes in the mix, and won't keep me from listening. Otherwise, a nice clean SBD with no AUD patches or problems.
